If you are of working age and on a low income you might be able to apply for Universal Credit (UC).
Claims for UC are made online. You currently do not have to go to the Jobcentre or any medical assessments in relation to your claim.
The DWP will know that you have applied and will contact you if they need any more information from you to process any payment you are due.
Call the free UC helpline on 0800 328 5644 (Welsh language : 0800 012 1888) if:
- you cannot get online (for example, you do not have access to a computer, or you are homeless or vulnerable)
- you have a question about your claim and can’t access your online claim.
